After LeBron James and his Los Angeles Lakers were eliminated in the first round of the 2021 NBA Playoffs, everybody and their brother was quick to bash them for a multitude of reasons.
Now, the Lakers have gone out and added Russell Westbrook, Carmelo Anthony, Dwight Howard, Trevor Ariza, Wayne Ellington and Kent Bazemore via trades and free agency and people are bashing them for being too old of a team to compete for a title.
Well, LeBron has heard those comments and he took to Twitter on Wednesday to post a fiery tweet that has since been deleted.
Though the tweet was only up for a short time, it went viral.
“Keep talking about my squad, our personnel ages, the way he plays, he stays injured, we’re past our time in this league, etc etc etc,” LeBron tweeted. “Do me one favor PLEASE!!!! And I mean PLEASE!!! Keep that same narrative ENERGY when it begins! That’s all I ask.”
Nation, do you think LeBron and the Lakers will win the title in 2022 or are they too old?
